We had asked for a no smoking room, we didn't get one. However, we did get a "quiet" room on at the side of the hotel. The room toilet did not flush properly, the AC would not cool, so we had to switch it off, one twin bed had missing and broken slats, the tv remote did not work, although most of these things were fixed, it was not what you expect when you arrive in a four star hotel. The staff were pleasent enough though and on the whole helpful. The reception, breakfast and pool bar area were acceptable. We did not try the evening meals. We picked this hotel to visit the sights of Athens and also be in the "Greek Riviera" of Glyfada, but Glyfada was not up to expectations. The local beach was poor, dirty and had no facilities (sunbeds etc) and Glyfada appeared overpriced and rundown. The private beaches further along the coast were not open when we were there. Trams were good & cheap, about 50 mins to Athens centre. We took the X96 bus from the Airport to the hotel, about 1/2 hr journey. We were helped by local people on the bus to find a stop near the hotel, because the bus driver was the rudest and most unhelpful we have ever encountered, especially on a airport bus full of arriving tourists. Bus back from the hotel to the airport was cheap and convenient.
